You voted - we listened. For the first time ever on Blu-ray, here are extended versions of your two favorite episodes from the celebrated Stargate Atlantis™ series - without commercial interruption, and in packaging you designed!

The exhilarating, feature-length pilot episode, Rising, sends a brilliant team of scientists through a Stargate to the legendary city of Atlantis. But not only is the city about to be engulfed by ocean water, an enemy appears who threatens everyone in the Pegasus Galaxy! And in the white-knuckle, lengthened Enemy at the Gate from Season 5, as the team tries to disempower Wraith hive ships, the Wraith discover coordinates that will allow them to destroy Earth!

Does anybody know if the SGA Fan's Choice Bluray will be released in the UK or whether it's release means that more Stargate blu ray releases are on the way? I'm new here and this is my first post so any info would be great! :-)

So.....the official press release doesn't say anything about Rising being an Extended Episode. Just Enemy at the Gate. This is troubling. I was really hoping for a new version of Rising, it was a major selling point for me...

Yeah, it's just called the "feature-length version of 'Rising,'" which I'm taking to mean that it's the single 90-ish minute episode originally aired when the series began and already available on the current DVDs, instead of the two separate episodes that are aired for reruns of the series. Pity, I was hoping for more footage, too.

According to Gateworld there will be no Blu Ray seasons of Stargate Atlantis. That stinks, I want to enjoy this show on my Blu ray player.

Yeah, but that would be pretty costly. I wish they'd do it right, and totally remaster SG-1 for Blu-ray like Paramount did with Trek. No need to re-do the FX unless they were rendered in SD, though. But while they are at it, go back and add in whatever scenes the director/writers felt should be in there. I still don't understand why Director's Cuts of TV shows are so rare, so many great scenes are axed just so the episode can fit the ridged time constraints of TV (although season 1-5 were on Showtime, which pretty much only requires episodes to be under 58 minutes or something...TPTB must have demanded it be syndication-friendly right from the start)

Oh, well. If anybody can confirm or deny if Rising is extended here. I might hold off on buying this BD if it isn't. Or not.

THE FANS HAVE THEIR WAY WITH STARGATE ATLANTIS

excerpt: Not only is Stargate Atlantis Fans’ Choice noteworthy because it is completely designed by the fans, but it’s also the only disc expected to be released in high definition. Even though this detail is specifically noted in the press release, I can’t image a Blu-ray edition of each season not hitting the shelves at some point. Regardless, Stargate Atlantis Fans’ Choice is essential for any SGA lover not necessarily for it’s content but rather because it commemorates a great show and it’s devoted viewers. You can get your copy for $29.99

Nope, it was just billed as "feature-length" (aka two-parter).

Blu-ray region codes work differently than DVD region codes. Blu-ray only has three:

a) North and South America, southeast Asia, Japan and Korea
b) Greenland/Iceland, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Australia/NZ
c) Central and South Asia, PRC, Russia

I'm thinking the Stargate Atlantis: Fan's Choice bluray disc. Hence the title of the thread.

I actually just bought it earlier today. Haven't really had a chance to fully "explore" it.

I watched it over the weekend. There weren't any extras on the dvd (blu-ray). Rising was the same as the one released on the season 1 DVD. EatG was extended by a few minutes, but it was the same as far as I can tell as the one on the season 5 DVD. As far as region codes go, I have no idea if it's encoded or not. I would presume its region 1.
Aside from some nice scene selection option and the main menu, there really wasn't anything new included.(Unless I completely missed something)

Hope this help somewhat.

Okay, I've got a question now: Wasn't the Fan's Choice supposed to be 10 episodes? Because the one I bought only has Rising and Enemy at the Gate.. unless it grouped those two eps together and the others are listed elsewhere... I'm feeling kinda cheated if that's the case!!!

Skydiver

If I remember right, when you voted online you picked 10. The release had the two which received the most votes. How 'Enemy at the Gate' won though is beyond me.
